Dana came to yoga as a teenager and developed a regular practice initially for the mental and emotional benefits she experienced of finding clarity, gaining confidence, and connecting to a peaceful place within. Her love for functional anatomy came later on, through healing injuries and her mentorship with Tiffany Cruikshank. Her teaching weaves together her two passions - intelligent anatomical sequencing and wisdom drawn from philosophy - to create classes with a three dimensional focus on health and wellness.
Dana has a bachelor’s degree in Economics from Cornell University and an associate’s degree in Graphic Design from Parson’s University in New York. Born in Israel and raised in New Jersey, she has found her true home in Lennox Head, Australia, where she is the owner of Lennox Yoga & Wellness Centre.
